As far as I know there is no gasket for the front cover and most people just silcone the cover on. As for removal... Fan belt, fan and pulley, crank damper and pulley... So that should get you at it... Knowing the filler neck is steel I would remove it find a piece of copper pipe and soldier a patch over the hole in the filter neck. I done this kind of patch work on steel fuel tanks when the owner got over zealous and drilled into the fuel tank. :rolleyes: (Not me!)

I have never used that on the front cover.The bummer part with 'right stuff' is the cost.I dont know how the other stuff would work.I think the trick is the set up time.I let all my rtv/rs set up a little before i install the part.I have used rtv on my rear diff cover with no leaks.

i used the gray on my rangers trans. the tube said HIGH TEMP/HIGH TORQUE(whereas the red is just high temp). if memory serves the gray was rated to 600F and the red was 650. when i changed the fluid in my Dana 80, it didn't have a gasket. just red rtv. you have to let it set or "skin" before you put the cover on
